This thought-provoking symposium on the topic of preeclampsia will feature accomplished experts—Olympic champion and maternal health advocate Allyson Felix; Stefan Verlohren, a global authority on preeclampsia; and world-renowned RNA expert Melissa J. Moore.
This program aims to deepen understanding, promote awareness, and inspire action against the pressing challenge of preeclampsia.
Hear from the world’s most decorated track and field athlete, Allyson Felix, as she shares her experience as a preeclampsia patient. Learn from Stefan Verlohren about the role of sFlt-1 within the pathophysiology of preeclampsia, its diagnostic and therapeutic implications, and how the currently available diagnostic tools have transformed his clinical practice. Melissa J. Moore will enlighten attendees about siRNA therapeutics, a groundbreaking outcome of Nobel prize-winning science, and their potential utility as a future option for treating preeclampsia.
By bringing together these trailblazers, this program not only promises to deepen our understanding of preeclampsia’s complexities but also to inspire collaborative efforts in advancing scientific solutions to this urgent maternal health issue.
